Maple Granola with Cherries & Walnuts

Nothing tastes better than homemade granola! I love the addition of dried cherries in this granola but you could also substitute the cherries from raisins, dried blueberries, or craisins.

Ingredients
  • 2 cup(s) rolled oats (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 1/2 cup(s) walnuts roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup(s) coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup(s) dried cherries
  • Optional to serve with Maple Granola with Cherries & Walnuts: plant-based milk, plant-based yogurt, fresh fruit or berries.
Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 300F (150C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  • Place the brown sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract into a small pot and place over medium heat. Stir and melt the mixture until smooth.
  • Pour the hot mixture over the oats and stir well until combined. Spread the oats out on the baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until golden. Stir twice throughout the cooking time to break the granola up a little. Remove the oven and let coo completely.
  • Once cool, stir through the dried cherries. Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
Notes
Dried cherry substitutes: raisins, dried blueberries, or craisins.
